This is too funny. This goes well with the recent CBS News article that only six people signed up the first day. So much for the claim that the website was having trouble because so many people were using it. By "so many" the Obama administration apparently meant more than 1,100 people. From Fox News:
The problem-plagued ObamaCare website was only equipped to handle 1,100 users a day before it was launched, documents released by the House Oversight and Reform Committee reveal.
The Obama administration has repeatedly insisted that the website’s repeated crashes were due to unexpectedly high traffic. U.S. Chief Technology Officer Todd Park said on Oct. 6 that the website was expected to draw around 60,000 simultaneous users but instead drew many more, around 250,000.
However, a Healthcare.gov testing bulletin from Sept. 30, the day before the site’s launch, states that the website began to run into trouble with far fewer users.
“Currently we are able to reach 1,100 users before response time gets too high,” the bulletin states.
The bulletin says that the goal moving forward was to “conduct more thorough testing with (the Federally Facilitated Marketplace) to reach targets of up to 10,000 concurrent users in the next few days.” . . .
Since we are on the website issue. Here is another article that is of interest. Obama was dishonest about the original law. He then was dishonest about what he said about the original law. Now his own website contradicts what he said he claimed about the original law. From my son Maxim at Fox News:
Millions of health insurance plans have been cancelled after ObamaCare went into effect, and President Obama backed away Monday from his previous oft-repeated statement that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”
But he may want to glance at his own website, WhiteHouse.gov, which still states: "For Americans with insurance coverage who like what they have, they can keep it. Nothing in this act or anywhere in the bill forces anyone to change the insurance they have, period."
That appears in a section of the WhiteHouse.gov website labeled "health reform details." The exact same language also appears in the Department of Health and Human Services' online description of the law.
But that web description is very different from what Obama said Monday to top backers of Organizing for Action, his permanent campaign arm.
“What we said was, ‘You could keep it [your plan] if it hasn’t changed since the law was passed,’” Obama said.
Critics say the conflicting language is dishonest. . . .
